CS:GO hits new all-time peak with 1.32 million concurrent players

CS:GO seems to be the game that will never die. Despite being released over a decade ago now, the competitive team-based first person shooter has only gone from strength to strength, hitting a record 1.3 million concurrent players back in April 2020. Since then, the game’s popularity has ebbed and flowed, but now – nearly three years after breaking its own record – CS:GO has once again surpassed itself.

On Saturday, the 11th of February 2023 Counter Strike: Global Offensive broke past its previous concurrent player record of 1,305,714 users, hitting a new game high of 1,320,219. Though not a giant leap over the previous record, it is worth noting that CS:GO has been on an upward trend – especially over the past few years.

CS:GO first hit 1 million concurrent players in March of 2020. Between then and now, the game has seen monthly peaks of over 1 million concurrents during 19 of the past 36 months – a strong showing indeed. Furthermore, with the past 7 months all seeing peaks of over 1 million, it is safe to say that the game’s upward trend is continuing.

It is worth noting that the CS:GO Esports IEM Katowice semi-finals have been going on, which would have undoubtedly contributed to the spike in numbers – but regardless of its effects there’s no denying that Counter Strike Global Offensive is bigger than ever more than a decade after its release.
